Clearbrook, MN — Not having consistency in school proves to be extremely difficult for everyone involved, teachers, students and parents. But that’s been the theme this school year for the Clearbrook-Gonvick School District. They’ve experienced many changes to their learning models going from full in person, to distance learning and now currently, the elementary is in person and the high school is in hybrid learning.
The Clearbrook-Gonvick district has suffered staff shortages as a result of rising covid cases in the county that eventually resulted in them moving to full distance learning. Superintendent Jeff Burgess says they are still experiencing shortages, but he gives a lot of credit to the teachers for getting every classroom covered.
Superintendent Burgess says a big push that the school district has made this year, has been getting technology to each and every student in anticipation of having to change learning models resulting in students not being in the building.
Like others, the Clearbrook-Gonvick School District does offer services to students that do struggle with the constant changes and distance learning.
